really Arb?
right... serious dissonance afficianados probably like stuff much less listenable than the worst of the Grateful dead I suppose.

But try blasting the feedback of 3-16-1968 on "11" if your sanity is a back burner item...

I do prefer the feedbacks without the help of midis and cgi sp. fx. But that Raven Space of April 19, 1982 from Poe's hometown is something to behold:

And my 1970 music teacher who had albums in her collection by Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, Charles Ives and oddly, just one Grateful Dead album, liked only one track (? - there IS only one track on side 1!), on side 1 of her copy of Anthem of the Sun:

"And So We Leave The Castle".

For details on the making of that track (a space which imho, deftly captures the gnawing pre-dawn psychedelic nausea), see the GD dvd Anthem to Beauty.

oh hey, i like nothing more than a mind-wrenching feedback out of alligator, a la 2/14/68, and i assure you i never bypass the feedback out of that amazing jam in 10/12/68; my point was more along the lines that the GD were not about drums/space/feedback, they were an exploratory band yes, but those musical diversions/dissonances were by no means their reason for stepping on stage
